Everyone likes to read, right?! Dr. Andrea had so much fun reading at her old elementary school (and even with her old teacher!) for Read Across America! What a great event to encourage and empower reading amongst children. 

During the month of November, we asked our patient to write down the things that they were thankful for in reminding us all to have gratitude. Such a great way for those simple reminders!

Advocacy

DC 2017- Washington D.C.

Dr. Andrea is back in the office after a very successful conference in Washington D.C. lobbying to further the chiropractic profession and maintain YOUR access to quality and affordable healthcare! Below she is pictured with Congressmen Ted Leiu and Pete Aguilar in their offices on the Captiol. She also had a brief interview with the largest chiropractic malpractice insurance carrier, NCMIC, at the conference.

Dr. Andrea took to the California State Capitol for CA Chiropractic Association Lobby Day! One of Dr. Andrea’s passion is advocating for chiropractic and healthcare, and she has been doing it for the last 6 years at the state and national level.  The goal is to educate legislators, bring awareness to healthcare issues and help be solution-based representatives of our practices and communities.  These photos are her in front of the Golden Bear outside to Governor’s office, on the steps of the Capitol and with colleagues at the pre-lobby meeting.

Dr. Andrea was able to take a day trip to Sacramento for the California Chiropractic Association's Lobby Day where doctors and students from all over the state travel to meeting with their state legislators on issues affecting healthcare and you, our patients. She was able to meet with Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon and newly elected State Senator Bob Archuleta. Great conversation with both representatives and we look forward to working together to serve our community!
